Data Breach and Identity Theft Prevention
Handling a data breach or identity theft is a bit like cooking a Thanksgiving dinner.
You can plan ahead, have all your ingredients ready, and carefully plan out your day to make sure your sides and turkey gracefully make their way onto the dinner table before the start of the final football game.
Alternatively, you can rush to the grocery store the night before your family arrives, fight off an elderly woman for the last can of cranberry sauce, and pray your rock-solid turkey thaws in time over your running faucet and tears.
When you are a victim of a data breach or identity theft, which one of these people do you want to be?
Stay One Step Ahead of Cyber Criminals
